Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and update any kind of file on a particular server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also make various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the website hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
The VPS servers
that we supply are suitable for a variety of purposes, based on what you'd like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. If your hosting server is provided with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access and will be able to manage your web content with a graphical interface, whereas you may still install server-side apps that may be needed for your web sites and even by offline applications, such as VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, and many others. Without any Control Panel, you will also have full root-level access, but you'll have to do everything using a console. When you choose to use our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, there are certain root access restrictions, but this configuration is the easiest to control. That way, you'll be able to choose the virtual server package that you really need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of the dedicated service
that we offer, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do with a shared website hosting account - to customize the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etc. You can order the server without any website hosting Control Panel and do everything using a console, unless you install some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your sites and many system settings. In all three cases, you'll have complete control over the server. The huge amount of resources which you'll get makes our dedicated packages an excellent choice for any type of content that you'd like to have. The servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are much easier to manage, but the root access to such a machine will be limited.
